Hey guys.... one of my homies just lifted his 2500 Chevy 8" with 37" tires. He's looking for a drop hitch today. Any ideas on what size drop he'll need. I was guessing at 10", but I'm not sure. For what it's worth.... The boat is an older X-star (X1/X2).

Thanks in advance

my gues would even be a 12". totally a guess though. I run an 8" or 10" and I have 35"'s with a leveling kit on a Dodge. you will have to play around and see which one. good luck

Measure from ground to top of receiver and subtract 17".

Maybe go 18" if there is a lot of tongue weight.

Usually they say 18" but also depends on the suspension.I got my hitch at 24" and still needs to go up a little but I got a 1500 as well.

diggs.. do you have a pic of your dodge with the leveling kit and 35s? I have the same truck with a leveling kit with 33s.. I was hoping to see what 35s look like

Thanks

I've got a Chevy crew cab with a 7" suspension lift with a 5 3/4 rapid hitch and I tow with it about 2/3 of the way up. I doubt he will need a 10" lift unless he just likes the look or wants to be on the extremely safe side. I was going to buy the 10" as well but after measuring and talking to the people at the lift place the 5 3/4 was definitely the way to go.

Tell your buddy to make sure he throws in the extra dough for the locks because they will sprout 2 legs and go to a new owner without.
